tick . this is kpix 5 news. >> good evening. i'm elizabeth cook. >> i'm ken bastida. that clock just keeps on ticking. four days and counting before that bart strike deadline. the union and management talked again today and will be back at the table again tomorrow. christin ayers caught up with bart's chief negotiator tonight. he's been taking a lot of flak for going on vacation during the middle of negotiations and also what looks like a pretty clear conflict of interest. >> you know, ken, it does look like a conflict of interest. his naum is tom hawk, and he works for a company that actually profited from the bart strike. his company brokered a contract for shuttle service when the train stopped running. when tom hawk left the negotiating table today i asked him about that.
he told me his xan only collected a small amount of money. he also defended his choice to go on vacation. >> those days we were not schedule today meet. she had days scheduled monday and tuesday with the union, but there were no days originally scheduled with us that week. >> what about those charges that you had a conflict of interest with the transportation company. >> i don't know anything about that. >> made $500 during the strike. >> that's lot of money, isn't it. >> it's not, but it's still money. it's still money, though. >> yeah. i mean, come on, let's be real. >> it is $500, but it's the principle of the thing, right. >> matter how you want to look at it. >> your thoughts are it isn't a conflict of interest. >> the board will ultimately decide whether there was a conflict of interest. as far as talks tonight, union rep told us still no movement
whatsoever on the major issues of wages and benefits, ken. >> 500 bucks is 500 bucks, though. he's part of a company that represents somebody who made money off the strike, there's no getting off that. christin ayers reporting live from oakland. so what options do commuters have? not many. bart says an outside judge cannot come in because california is a collective bargaining state. bringing in replacement drivers is also out of the question legally so what about asking the governor for a cooling-off period. >> all it does is drag this out plus sets us up for a possible strike in october. october is our highest ridership month every year. >> it has about $20 million that could be used to hire more buses, bus drivers, but that would be a bad investment because it stands to lose a lot of money if the strike gets
settled quickly. if there is a strike, san francisco bay ferry will add extra service. there will also be an additional arrival and departure dock at the golden gate farely building. that is triple the average amount. of course, you can find the latest information on commuter al tern tefs and strike survival guide on kpix.com. a big sieg of relief tonight. a man caught on camera in a brutal attack is now behind bars. it's hard to watch but joe vasquez tells us if the video didn't go viral, the attacker might have walked away scot-free. >> police chief greg suhr announced the arrest at a community meeting in castro. >> it was just a horrific, completely after the fact malicious kick to the head of the poor woman on the ground. >> 23-year-old christopher porter bailey of oakland was the man caught on video savagely
attacking a robbery victim. it happened pride weekend june 29th. the robbers took a woman's purse then for no apparent reason kicked her right in the face. immediately after the crime, cops arrested two other people. another man was also arrested, but those charges were dropped. the cops say the group robbed several people that night in a crime spree along market street. chief sir says the surveillance video was instrumental in catching him. >> you know, we got a lot of public help. we got a lot of help from some sources i can't really speak to, but they were shocked by the video. we got help from every quarter. >> mission district captain bob moser tells me his investigators are telling him it turns tout cops know porter bailey already because he was involved in a fight two years ago also during pride weekend. despite that timing, the captain
says right now there is no indication that group was targeting people because they're gay, no evidence of a hate crime. >> as for the victim, she is expected to recover fully. tonight, daphne webb's family wants to remind everyone the 21 month old is still missing. tonight they held a candle light vigil nearly three weeks after her dad says someone kidnapped her from his car although police isn't sure what happened. they are combing dichtd neighborhoods to look for clus, knocking on doors and passing out fliers. the man charged in the deaths of two san francisco jowlly store clerks pleaded not guilty today to murder. prosecutors say 23-year-old barry white, jr., attacked the victims because he believed he paid $300 too much for a piece of jumly. police say that july 12th rampage inside the jewelry mart was one of the most horrific

leaked by edward snowden. >> they have multiple ways to get all your information, phones, e-mail, your web browsing. >> mark klein blew the whistle several years ago for o and today with x key score and new technology. >> they could store a whole on everybody in the country going back years. it's pretty frightening. >> government surveillance versus privacy took center stage at a talk tonight in oakland. exkey score say massive infrastructure with hundreds of servers around the world. don't even need your e-mail address to monitor your online. it is ill lisle for intelligence ageneral dis to monitor americans would have a warrant. >> the government gets access first and then proves that you did something wrong second. it's not supposed to be that way. >> some computer users say it's
not a big deal. >> it's not like i'm concerned that, oh, they're going to look at me. if they do, that's fine. >> for those that don't want the government watching, there is enkripgs that can protect you. >> when you have that little lock icon in your browser in top right or top left corner so there's no evidence that the nsa can break this enkripgs. >> google and microsoft have the enkripgs but yahoo and aol do not, and facebook announced today it will. >> interesting stuff. when we first heard about the nsa surveillance going on, we heard about program called prism. now, how is prism different than the x key score. >> that's right. okay. prism is when the nsa targets orders to specific silicon valley companies to get information on specific foreign terror suspects. x key core is much wider in scope. one description that it's like vacuuming a who will room on
